Recently, we’ve seen ‘Ohana and Kona Island reopen prior to the resort. But, today’s the first official day that all guests are welcome to stay at the hotel. While the Grand Ceremonial House won’t be open to visitors and monorail station are still under construction, there’s one BIG feature that will draw in fans of all ages!

Along with the rest of the resort, the brand new Moana rooms have welcomed guests now as well! Disney refurbished the Polynesian’s existing rooms to incorporate the princess into the decorations. Of course, we’re giving you a full look inside with a tour of the Moana rooms!

New Moana-Themed Rooms

Each space has been redesigned to feature more of a Pacific Ocean-inspired color palette that Disney has said should evoke “undulating ocean waves and tropical flowers.” That means that plenty of textures and details have been pulled straight from Moana’s island of Motunui with artwork inspired by the characters.

You can find the pattern of Maui’s tattoos on the wall…

The bathroom’s tiles and vanity are meant to look like a sandy ocean floor with neutral tones.

  1. I saw the room with a king sized bed and day bed on youtube. It’s pretty and spacious. I am hoping the Disney website will show these rooms soon. We are very excited about the Moana rooms. We already have reservations.
